This edit is just fantastic I have no complaints about it.
I highly recommend watching this edit.
The pacing is really good.
Pretty much everything that I didn't like In first class is gone.
I really like the darker beginning of the movie.
I am looking forward to this new X-Men universe.
Hope to see a sequel in the nearby future.
The subtitles were also really good.
If the editor needs any help with the X-Men projects I am happy to help.
im very new at doing Reviews here. im not sure if it was SD or HD, but the Quality was good for me but i really loved this movie and i really had a good time and all i can say is this is a really good edit and it has alot of passion! im excited for the sequel and this this X-Men Continuity Series.
A very tight edit which does a lot to fix the things that dragged First Class down. The X-Men film series seems to be plagued by underdeveloped and ultimately pointless supporting characters who just happen to have a name from X-Men comics. This trimmed this as best it could, though there are still limitations to how much of that can be done. Ultimately, putting the narrative focus on Magneto was a great idea as his was always the most compelling story in the film (a holdover from when this was to be X-Men Origins: Magneto, perhaps?).
I rated enjoyment as a 9 only because there is an issue with the subtitles. They don't quite work exactly as they should and in a movie with so much non-English dialogue that does hurt enjoyment.
This is the first in an exciting new project started by theryaney that seeks to bring all of the X-Men films into one cohesive continuity. Several other editors have joined the fray, making this one of the biggest collaborative projects that FE.org has ever seen!
Most of the scenes involving Xavier and Mystique have been taken out for a couple of reasons. First, it allows this film to focus more heavily on how Erik became the main protagonist/antihero of the X-Men. Originally an "X-Men Origins: Magneto" was in the works; this is probably something of what it would have looked like.
Second, there's very little in the other X-Men films to suggest that Xavier and Mystique had a significant friendship, so when watching them with "First Class" first, it can seem somewhat jarring. But now their friendship seems a bit more casual. Without the lighter Xavier-Mystique scenes, and with the focus on Erik's tragic backstory, this film becomes much darker but deeply compelling.
Nearly all cuts are unnoticeable; I had to go back and re-watch the original just to see what had been taken out because the cuts were so seamless.
In the interest of complete objectivity, I must note that I had lots of problems with the subtitle file; it only worked sporadically for me. But theryaney assures me that no one else has had issues with it, so I don't want to dwell on this too long. (Heaven knows I've never built a subtitle file before!)
I'm very excited about this project, and theryaney has got it off to a great start with this edit. I look forward to seeing how the project continues to develop!
